Product Description

A unique and incredible model of the Universal Pictures 1931 Frankenstein’s Monster.

In 1938 Don Post created Don Post Studios, in order to make Party and Halloween masks, specialising in the monsters of Hollywood movies, by the 1960s. In 1973, Universal lent the original designs, drawings and specifications for the Monster in ‘Frankenstein’, as portrayed by the famous actor Boris Karloff, to Don Post. The design was the brainchild of Jack Pierce, the master of movie make-up. Don Post used the specifications to build a model that graced the desk in his office for several years. He hand sculpted the face and hands, to be an exact replica of the Karloff monster. The skin colour is the original hue. It was changed in later representations to be a greenish colour. The model was mounted on a dark mahogany wood square base. It featured in an interview of Don Post for ‘Monsters of Filmland’ magazine. A dedicated fan in England wrote to the Studio to ask about possibly buying it and purchased it for around £400, in 1975. We have bought it as part of a Frankenstein Monster collection, which we are also listing. Condition is extremely good.
